The No Compromise Truth
What did you love best about The 80/10/10 Diet?
I have been studying diet, nutrition, health for fifty years. In 1972, I read Arnold Ehret's "Mucusless Diet and Healing System" and the Murray Rose book, "Faith, Love and Seaweed" and became a raw fooder for three years living in Southern California. Returning to Texas and to the diet and family that reared me, I abandoned the truth of Arnold Ehret's 1922 book. Ehret didn't have the science to back his teachings but had direct, first-hand experience on himself, desperately seeking health in a diseased body.
Myself, out of desperation, at age 72, due to lack of vitality, strength, energy, motivation, re-read Ehret. By accident, 80/10/10 appeared on an Amazon display as a similar read. I received it as an audio book (I recommend it in audio) and have given three gifts to share this no compromise nutritional truth. Graham's 80/10/10 has the science to substantiate the truth on the many food prorams circulating. In the same manner as the book, "Improving on Pritikin," 80/10/10 is "Improving on Ehret." 80/10/10 trumps other high carb/low fat diets advocated by John McDougal, Dean Ornish, Pritikin and others.
Douglas Graham has a background as a coach as well. My granddaughter is a long distance runner on scholarship at Rice University. I gave her Graham's other book on sports performance and diet.
In two weeks, I have already begun to experience a turn around in the areas of my aforementioned desperation. At the same time, I am fighting enormous battles with my food preferences/fetishes/addicitons. Talking the talk is one thing. Walking the walk is quite another. But I am convinced and convicted, anything other than Graham's 80/10/10 raw vegan diet is, "playing house," tricking oneself to live a little longer to live a little wronger. "The accepted diet of man is the tragedy of life," to paraphrase Arnold Ehret.
As an audio book on all my devices utilizing a bluetooth headset, I listen to the book while walking my dog, driving a car and lyng in bed before falling asleep. I relisten to the chapters over and over to comprehend the science and be able to share and articulate this knowledge as well as encourgagement to overcome the obstacles.
What about Brett Barry’s performance did you like?
Best audio re ad book ever. One feels like it's Graham reading it. Trippingly on the tongue, Barry doesn't miss a beat, reads with a rhythum and punctuation as well as a conviction of believing this message. Hearing a book and reading one are different learning processes. Multiple hearings are necessary (as are multiple-readings at my age) and appropriate to retain and digest the message. At low ebbs and times of discouragement, the re-listening serves as inspiration and overcoming.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I indeed had an extreme reaction to 80/10/10, lamenting the many friends with ailments such as diabetes and family who will not hear the argument or be capable of practiciing the truth contained in its pages...simple as it is. I lament the public at-large who will not be able to embrace this teaching for a myriad of reasons."Broad is the path and wide is the gate that leads to destruction.
Any additional comments?
Thanks to Douglas Graham for refusing to "hedge" or compromise on the most important issue in life, one that we have been taught ignorance about: What We Are To Eat.
